Prawn Briyani My Style

For the past few weeks, I have seen so many blogger friends posting on Prawn Briyani and Prawn Pulav. This made me so tempted to make my version of Prawn Briyani, it was so simple to make yet very tasty and you will want to have more of it.

Come, let us look at my version of  Prawn Briyani;


250g of prawns deshelled
1 onion chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp cumin seed
1 star anise
1 bay leaf
2 red/ green chili slit
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp tamarind paste
2 sprigs of curry leaves
A bunch of coriander leaves
2 cups of cooked rice
2 tbsp of oil
1/2 cup of water

First let us prepare the prawn masala;

In a pan, heat oil add curry leaves, cinnamon stick, star anise, cumin, bay leaf and stir for a minute then add ginger garlic paste, onion, tomato, red/green chili and prawn.

Then add turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and water and let it simmer until prawn is cooked and gravy thickens then add tamarind paste incorporate well with gravy. 

Finally add in coriander leaves and cooked rice when all the water from the gravy completely evaporated.

Our Prawn Briyani now is ready to be served, I'm loving the taste of it and do try and let me know how it turned out for you.
